, and this is why there is outrage toward the united states government. is -- or the united states, because protesters are blaming the u.s. for allowing this video to come out and they are saying the u.s. is accountable and responsible for the fact that they allowed a video like this to go out there and to be spread out there. so that's why these protesters are -- are definitely angry and directing their anger toward the united states. >> mona, being in cairo, why do you think that's happening now? who benefits? >> reporter: that's a great question. we're in a stage where the revolution that began last year for freedoms of all kinds is still very much not completed and a big concern for many in egypt today is that these terrible events will be used by the government to justify a return to emergency law. we still don't have a constitution in egypt, we don't have a parliament. our president and prime minister missing all day. they have made no official statements. you basically have a fringe element that claims to represent us, and it doesn't, on a day and a time when egyptians are still very
is a big thing that iran knows and israel knows and the rest of the world knows that the united states is not going to let iran get a weapon or capability of getting a weapon. >> first of all, i think there's a balance. you need to strike a balance. what many including governor romney and congressman ryan and others around the world have said you have to be specific about this capability point. that you have to be able to signal to the iranians and the world that just building the weapon or getting close to building the weapon, is not the red line. having the tools at their disposal, that they would be easily assembled is a big problem and must be stopped because if they have the tools to assemble a weapon, easily assemble a weapon, it will have the impact that the iranian leadership wants. it will enable them to establish some set of region in the back their terror proxy operations through hezbollah and hamasimpum to just put pressure on friends and adversaries of ours and that's unacceptable and drawing that line does not mean you have to say at this specific moment at this specific
in the classroom come monday morning. the taliban say they are responsible for the deaths of two united states marines. it happened in helmand province. a joint u.s. and british base where britain's prince harry is stationed. taliban have threatened to capture or kill harry during taliban. >>> new graphic video today out of syria. at least 145 people were killed across the country today. that's according to an opposition group. syria's president says he's committed to resolving the crisis as long as peace efforts are conducted in neutrality sxindens. he met today with a new international envoy from the united nations. and arab league. special envoy for the u.n. refugee agency, angelina jolie is speaking out about the syrian crisis. >> i share in everyone's concerns about the winter approaching. with the violence and conflict showing no signs of easing up and the numbers growing as people are crossing the borders and -- it is a very large concern for all of us and i hope we can all work together to make sure that, of course, you know, to be blunt, nobody freezes to death in this very, very frig
mohammed as blas fa mouse. we don't know if this person is base based in the united states and that's to whom the video is attributed as why the attacks were made on american properties abroad. we don't know if there were more complex reasons. this is not the first time that perceived criticism of islam has been reacted to violently in the muslim world. a florida pastor promoted what he was calling "burn a koran day." that spurred days of protests in afghanistan killing nine people there. in 2005 it was cartoons depi depicting the prophet mohammed. and u.s. service members accidentally burned copies of the koran in order to dispose of them. it sparked riots throughout afghanistan killing 30 people overall. but again, breaking news at this hour. a day of violent protests in libya and egypt. the american consulate and the american embassy in egypt. and reports still unconfirmed at this time that one american may have been killed at that consulate attack. this is an evolving story. we're still trying to get confirmation, but we'll update you as we learn more. that's tonight's breaking
of innocence, a loss of beliefing that it cobe anything but an attack on the united states and a realization as a nation we would never really be the same again after this moment. and also, that, we would most likely soon be at war in one way or another. and all of that in these moments, 11 years ago began to sink in. you look at that beautiful reflecting pool that marks that spot at ground zero. all of it opened last year. bill and i were down there and watched as those ceremonies took place. it is a striking, striking memorial. i have to say this morning on my way into the city it was dark and the red, white and blue on the tower of world trade center 1 was overwhelming to me. it was so moving. and it is not yet finished which some people are not too happy about but, boy, it is quite a sight on the skyline of new york city now. bill: if you have been to the memorial site or maybe have plans to come in the coming year or years to come, those pools sit within the footprints where the twin towers once stood, north and south tower. those reflecting pools that come in and out of your camera vie
to the united states and says that the u.s. needs to show a greater respect to arab values and culture. reports say that he attempted to meet with president obama at the white house, but dropped that request later. >> absolutely no one intentionally or unintentionally misled anybody involved in this. >> the obama administration has taken a lot of heat on what is happening in libya. republicans are calling the way the attack was handled, quote, a debacle. thank you, very much, great to see you. i would like to start -- >> good to be here. >> with a quote from senator bob corker, briefed by secretary of state clinton and several intelligence leaders late last week about the attacks on benghazi and what was happening in egypt. he said, this is a direct quote -- that was the most useless, worthless briefing i have attended in a long time. this from a senator, not prone it overstatement. what's your take on that? >> i agree. we also in the house received the same briefing. i don't know if they said the same things, but it was the same participants. it was led by our house foreign affairs committee.
as with the parliament there. he will be out of office next year. the united states government was right not to show up in the general assembly. at least 12 others countries boycotted the event. that's a little unusual at the united nations but he deserves it because he doesn't ever say anything useful and given our strong support for israel in particular, we had to make a statement today, the obama administration did make a statement, we're not going to listen to him anymore. >> do you think that the administration made a mistake in having the president really not in action here? this is the first time, really unprecedented for him to have no bilateral meetings not with just our closest aallies, but morsi is here, this is a pivotal moment with egypt, he spoke to the united nations, all these meetings held by hillary clinton and not by the president of the united states. jon stewart interviewing king abdullah of jordan last night and posing that question. >> you were at the u.n. today. does anyone -- is there any discussion amongst world leaders about the american president not being available for face
is that he's running for president of the united states. he's not running for president of one half of the united states or president of the republican party. and as barack obama said so brilliantly in his speech at the convention, you know, we're a community and we need to all work together to a common goal. and you know, to divide the country and say this half is this half is just wrong. second, his facts are wrong. that 47%, those people are paying taxes. many of them are paying a higher tax rate than mitt romney is because they're paying their payroll taxes at 14%. and third, all politicians should understand, when you're running for president or any other office, you can't talk out of both sides of your mouth. you can't go to a fund-raiser and say one thing and then go on tv and say another thing. you need to speak consistently about what you're for. and it just goes to show the choice we have in this election is so stark, and mitt romney has laid it out so clearly that i think democrats, rightfully this morning, and people in the country, rightfully this morning, see what they
today when the united states is speaking to the general assembly and things are going to move. >> brian: and the curtain initiative. >> gretchen: we should have stayed home. darn we are here. top level meeting between u.s. and egypt since anti-american protestors stormed our embassy. secretary of state meeting with president morsi. morsi assured clinon that protecting the embassy was the duty. nato troops spoiling the insider attack. special ops team arresting to afghans that are planning to attack a coalition base. first time nato thwarted an insider attack that kill would 51 troops. disturbing discovery. in addition to the marijuana-heroin and prescription drugs. three kids, too. 8, 7, and 5 . trapped in the trunk. they got suspicious when they heard a thumping sound. they hadn't eaten since the night before. the cops arrested the 28 year old mom and her fiance. >> two grown men in suit. duking it out on a cab in new york city. >> and finally one man prevailed and not because the loser gives a smack on the hid. >> steve: keep the tip. everyone will know who they are. >> steve: i belie
kippur. ahmadinejad delivers his usual diatribe against israel and the united states. >> no suspension for belichick but that won't end the furor over the replacement refs. a deal in sight? does this mean to he would tackle the deficit? >>> ann romney dishes to ja leno about mitt. >> would you say he is frugal or cheap? >> cheap. >> cheap. really cheap. okay. >> do you want to know what he does when he leave the house? he turns off the h water heat. >>o yo knot hoe w we come back from the house, he forgets he has to turn the hot water heater on, cold shers, they're not that bad. >> indeed. good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in new york. dueling messages in ohio where in a few moments both ndides wi beelin ch appearing only about 100 miles from each other but with sharply different messages. as president obama widens his ohio lead in the latest polls, joining me for our daily fix, chris cizilla, managing editor of post and "whington po" pic reporter karen tu multi. chris, first talk about the polls. how significant is it the double-digit lead in some polls now, cbs/"new yor
working worldwide are working in the united states. we're producing more, we're using less. that's a path to energy independence, and i like that. jenna: so it's interesting that you're a democrat and you're governor of montana because i went back and lookedded at some of the voting records in your state, and if you look at the way your state has voted in the presidential lengths, it's voted mainly republican going back to the clintons, right now it looks like your state leaning towards mitt romney. why are you supporting the president? what is it about the president that continues to get your support when the people that you represent may not be as convinced? >> oh, gosh, i think it's been since lbj since a democrat got to 50% in montana, so that's not unusual. but this president was, inherited one of the worst economies in the history of this country. 29 consecutive months of increasing private sector jobs. by the way, all over this country we've been decreasing public sector jobs. in montana public sector jobs are down by 4.2%, and we're at 6.5% unemployment. so we've created 4.5 milli
're the first lady of the united states, you have a bevy of dresses designed for you, and that is no different for ann romney, but that plays into the narrative, so that's why you see the focus on it. it's a down time in the economy, and it is an attempt, again, to suggest that the romneys are out of touch with middle class americans, which that will be up to the american people to decide, but i think that story plays into that narrative. >> i want to button this up with something else we see so prevalently in this day and age is digital media. the number of tweets that were rolling in per minute when it came to michelle obama. 28,000 tweets per minute while she was speaking. she's not even the candidate. look how it compared to the left. mitt romney's measurement was only 14,000 tweets per minute. but let's finish it this way by saying, as you said, she's not running. she may have an effect but she's not running. important to note that. >> and she's also the first lady of the united states, and she's been in a very prominent role for five years now, so let's -- you know, i think balance it by
of the united states, and she's been in a very prominent role for five years now, so let's -- you know, i think balance it by the reality that she's not a world leader yet. >> hoover, you're great. thank you. >> thanks. have fun down there. >> all right, so cnn's prime time coverage of the national convention will kick off tonight with wolf blitzer and anderson cooper and during the 10:00 hour, bill clinton is going to address the delegates and a lot of people have been waiting on this speech. at midnight, piers morgan is going to wrap up the first night of the democratic national convention and it will be terrific from top to bottom. but i had already gone through menopause. these symptoms may be nothing... but they could be early warning signs of a gynecologic cancer, such as cervical, ovarian, or uterine cancer. feeling bloated for no reason. that's what i remember. seeing my doctor probably saved my life. warning signs are not the same for everyone. if you think something's wrong... see your doctor. ask about gynecologic cancer. and get the inside knowledge. exclusive to the military, and c
public investments. our good schools, our universities. medicare, security. and that in the united states when those two have met, when individual initiative has met with a common sacrifice and investment by the nation, that's what's created upward mobility. and the ability to reach the american dream in our society that makes america unique. and i put before the nation the clear choice that we have in this election between a leader in barack obama who will -- who has been doing that, making those investments and will in the future and another leader who would scale back from those investments and therefore i think hinder america's ability to be the land of opportunity going forward for everyone. >> where did you come up with that line of the night? i think it was the best line so far in this convention where you said mitt romney said just ask your old man for money when you want to start a business. you said why didn't i think of that? where did you come up with that great sarcasm? >> what i wanted to do was be optimistic but point out the differences. as the first lady pointed out very
that as a man accepts his party's nomination for president of the united states, to be our commander in chief, he didn't even mention the war we were fighting, which will be our longest war, not to mention he didn't mention anything about veterans and our sacred obligation to them. i find it stunning. i find his comments in the aftermath of that stunning. his response to bill crystal's criticism and fox news' criticism of him, it's remarkable. what i have been talking about, martin, is what an exceptional president and commander in chief president obama has been. he's done exactly what he said he was going to do by ending a war in iraq, setting us on a path to hand over authority in afghanistan by 2014. making sure that we refocused our efforts on going after al qaeda in afghanistan and pakistan, decimating al qaeda. you saw the news yesterday what happened in yemen. proving the mission to eliminate osama bin laden from the face of this earth, and also and importantly, this is something i'm not sure romney and ryan understand, honoring the commitment we have to our veterans when they return.
is the republican nominee for the united states senate in wisconsin. tommy thompson right now is losing that race. the last five polls out of wisconsin all show tommy thompson losing, including one poll out today that shows him losing by 12 points. and that was before the "milwaukee journal sentinel" today posts this video of tommy thompson this summer telling a tea party group what his plans are for medicare and also for medicaid. listen to this. >> change medicare and medicaid like i did welfare, and who better than me, that's already finished one of the entitlement programs, to come up with programs to do away with medicaid and medicare? >> who better than me, to do away with medicare? we're going to have to wait until the next round of polling in wisconsin to see how the tape of tommy thompson saying he wants to get rid of medicare affects his numbers, in a state that's already inclined against him by 12 points. what do you think the next round's going to look like. mr. thompson's democratic opponent in this senate race is named tammy baldwin. one snapshot of politics right now in this countr
. they went after these militia extremists which are al qaeda-affiliated themselves. the united states is more popular in libya than any country in the arab world, but they need help. after it was over, did we give them the assistance they needed? no. their borders are porous. al qaeda is coming in. they don't have a strong government. they have a people that like the united states of america. in afghanistan we are having americans killed by "insiders." >> the troops that we're training. >> yeah. >> forces we are training in uniform. they just inflicted the greatest damage on kandahar since the tet offensive. they blew up irreplaceable aircraft, and it's because the president has consistently overruled the recommendations of his military advisors. the chickens are coming home to roost, and the president won't even talk about it. >> let me ask you two quick questions. one of them i just want to say cnn did not put out the ambassador's diary. we did a report off of it. i want to make that clear to our viewers. >> by the way, i don't have a problem with that. the reason why the administration obj
? >> i'm going to win pennsylvania and i'm going to become the next president of the united states. we're going to win. there's no question in my mind. we're going to begin. if instead i know -- instead, when i become president. i'm going to become the next president. >> i believe if the election were held today, romney would win by four or five points. >> no, they don't. they're just caught up in the margin of anger. >> half the country is simply uninformed. they don't know anything. >> they believe they're entitled. >> that doesn't add up to much, governor. >> lap dog liberals. >> the left based mainstream media. >> has the obama campaign ep gauged in character assassinati assassination. >> oh sure. >> i'm not familiar with precisely exactly what i said but i stand by what i said whatever it was. >>> we begin this friday with no shortage of confidence from mitt romney even as his ineptember draws to a close with more bad news for the republican nominee. this time it's in the form of nine polls in nine battleground states with the president leading all nine. now, in britain 999 is the
in issued this statement -- "it's shocking that a candidate for president of the united states would go behind closed doors and declare to a group of wealthy donors that half of the american people view themselves as victims entitled to handouts and are unwilling to take personal responsibility for their lives. it's hard to serve as president for all americans when you've disdainfully written off half the nation." in a late-night news conference, romney responded. >> well, you know, it's not elegantly stated, let me put it that way. i'm speaking off the cuff in response to a question, and i'm sure i could state it more clearly and in a more effective way, but it's a message which i'm going to carry and continue to carry, which is, look, the president's approach is attractive to people who are not paying taxes because, frankly, my discussion about lowering taxes isn't as attractive to them. and therefore, i'm not likely to draw them into my campaign as effectively as those who are in the middle. >> let me britain in anne kornblut for "the washington post" and a politics reporter for roll
, they're looking for a 5% drop in the united states which is a pretty bad indicator for america's economy. i think that's actually 5%. so, i really want to move on fast to apple. is it at 700, yes or no? >> no, a nickel, pull out a nickel. that's how far away we are 699.95. stuart: am i right in saying that during regular market hours it has yet to hit 700. pre-market, post market. >> correct. stuart: but-- >> i saw it over 701 overnight. so iphone 5 has been obviously breaking all records. stuart: i here by guarantee, the trumpets will sound when we hit #00. >> i thought you were guarantee 700. stuart: no, not. nice dry, nicole, nice dry. the dow industrial is down as we suggest. i'm going to stay on apple and bring in branding strategist, the author of the book "break through branding". katherine, welcome to the program. >> thanks for having me. stuart: now, i want to talk about the buzz that apple creates, very, very cleverly. did they deliberately produce fewer iphones, just restrict their production knowing that they were going to get huge orders so they could go out and sa
about the united states and how that relates to what israel does against iran and what we do again to stop iran from developing nuclear weapons? >> it is a really interesting statement from netanyahu. hillary clinton came out yesterday and said no deadlines. i think the israelis want a firm deadline from the united states on when we will do military action because ultimately if you look at this operation, yes, the israelis can hit something, yes, they can do some damage, but only with the united states, only with our b-1 bombers and cruise missiles can you do significant long-term damage to the nuclear facilities in iran. so the question is, yes, the israelis could go alone, but it is always far more optimal to get on board with the united states. so i think this issue is going to remain a live issue into 2013, because i don't see how we have an off ramp. dagen: right. helima terrific to see you. we covered so much in little time. next time more time i promise. >> thanks. connell: new book that's come out from bob woodward. we will talk about that book on the day in which boehner h
with the united states that's strong and at the same time they're a democracy that is an islamic democracy, a political islamic party running it and charting a path to try to play all different angles and they criticized israel. they criticized iran. certainly, in the days ahead it's interesting to watch. >> jim, watching morsi and the president's relationship develop and the president give the interview about not being an ally, not being an enemy, but egypt has been such a critical ally over the years, certainly through mubarak and relied heavily on the billions of dollars that we have sent and taxpayer dollars. does it come down now more to who needs more more? >> egypt has a treaty definition is and has been an ally and probably will be an ally. i think an underreported aspect of what obama's comments could have been interpreted as is a personal message while egypt is an ally, you know, it is not -- there are strings attached and we need to make sure to do business with each other, man to man, person to person, leader to leader. so yeah. i think that morsi is charting his own path but h
the president of the united states needs mr. clinton to help him with that narrow sliver of undecided voters, especially women ages 30 to 50 who grew up with bill clinton as sort of their teenage or childhood president. that's important. the second thing is is that bill clinton and hillary clinton need barack obama. they need him to perform strongly and to do well, because if barack obama loses and loses on the scale of a carter, that is very bad for the democratic brand for years to come and that is not helpful to a, perhaps, nominee or presidential candidate hillary clinton. so on many levels, this is -- they are living vicariously off each other and through each other, and as i said to a buddy of mine back stage a minute ago, clearly they are carrying each other's bags now and that's probably not a bad thing for today's politics. >> one of the interesting tidbits in this new yorker story looks at the -- pardon me. one of the interesting tidbits, sorry, i was hearing something in my ear there. one of the interesting tidbits looks at clinton's strategic advice to barack obama. look, you att
if you want to see barack obama re-elected president of the united states, do whatever you can for virgil goode. they challenged his spot on the ballot and they said put him on the ballot anyway, and he's going to be on the ballot unless virginia's attorney general, this guy, decides to kick virgil goode off the ballot. he's been campaigning for mitt romney including last week at the republican convention. under virginia law, he gets to decide whether virgil goode gets his name on the ballot or not. look at the headline, he promises he will be absolutely objective about this whole thing. absolutely. virginia is getting three different mitt romney ads this week. virginia, ohio, new hampshire, iowa, colorado, nevada, north carolina, florida. that's it, that's the election. who the country is counting on to handle this election about the presidency for the rest of us, eight states. when stuff gets weird in one of those eight states, when something like virgil goode happens in one of those eight states, while that might be a weird side bar virginia story at any other time in any other politic
pennsylvania and i'm going to become the next president of the united states. >> okay. just to clarify, the romney campaign is running no ads whatsoever in pennsylvania. mr. romney is down 12 points in "the new york times" poll this week. pennsylvania is not in play. i guess that's why tonight he'll head up to battleground massachusetts. yes, another fund-raiser. this time with the president of the new england patriots, son of the patriots owner. good thing that strike is over. could be a bit awkward collecting 75 grand a plate. if you're wondering why mitt romney isn't complaining in, say, florida, it may be that mitt romney never, ever wants to cibo se see boca raton again. case in point, vice president joe biden in boca raton this afternoon who had a quite different view of the 47%. >> these people are fighting back with every single thing they have. i don't sense any sense of dependency. they're just looking for a little opportunity, a level playing field, a fair shot. my dad used to say, joey, i don't expect the government to solve my problems but i do expect them to understand my
question was d. united states ambassador to afghanistan adolf dubbs was killed in kabul in 1979 after being killed by militants. in december of that year the soviet union invaded afghanistan. thanks to all of you for being part of my program this week. ly see you next week. stay tuned for "reliable sources." -- captions by vitac -- >>> it was a stunning strategy. in the heed of this campaign season the media immediately gravitated toward the sniping between the candidates almost to the point of overshadowing the horrifying attack itself. >> in this case mitt romney and the republicans are making something, something very ugly out of something that should have been a time for unity. >> the media is going along with the obama administration pretending like this is a protest on some phantom video youtu youtube. no. >> was it an assault or deflecting attention from the larger story? pundits on the right pounding romney after the convention saying he's blowing the race. >> if you can't beat barack obama with this record, then shut down the party. shut it down. >> why ar
the need for israel or even the united states to respond militarily? >> and probably sanctions are, they're just not working. there are other things that are working that have bought a lot of time. there's the sabotage program that's probably being spearheaded by the israelis, but we may be involved as well. and this is caused things like centrifuges, iranian centrifuges that operated at extremely high speeds and precision in manufacture to explode, things like this, which is reported of course in a book by a new york times reporter, with leaked information. the chairman of the intelligence committee diane feinstein in the senate saying she learned more from this book than in briefing from the intelligence community. that's another topic, those things are effective. sanctions less so, our own intelligence community said that these sanctions are not stopping the iranian program. >> jamie: you have to hope in the conversation our president had with benjamin netanyahu, whatever the intelligence that the prime minister has that leads that the bombs are potentially sooner was shared and that
